LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- The Raiders Official Watch Party will take place on Sept. 9 at a number of locations inside The LINQ Hotel + Experience and surrounding areas when the Silver and Black face AFC Western Division rival Denver Broncos in Oakland on ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
The LINQ Hotel + Experience venues 3535, ReMatch, Catalyst, and Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar; Carnaval Court at Harrah’s Las Vegas; Chayo, Virgil’s and AmeriCAN at The LINQ Promenade will transform into Silver and Black viewing dens, with pregame activations beginning at 6 p.m., in advance of the 7:20 p.m. kickoff.
Silver and Black beads will be distributed to all in attendance at the Raiders Official Watch Party, which is free to the public, and five locations—3535, ReMatch, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, Chayo and Virgil’s—will each give away 100 exclusive Raiders t-shirts on a first-come basis.
Raiders Alumni will be available for autographs starting at 6 p.m. at 3535. The Alumni will also sign autographs at Chayo from 7 p.m. until kickoff and during halftime at ReMatch.
Raider Rusher, the Silver and Black’s Youth Ambassador, will be on hand to entertain fans young and old beginning at 6 p.m. at ReMatch. Prior to kickoff at 7 p.m., several lucky fans in attendance will join Raider Rusher in zooming down The LINQ Promenade on the popular FLY LINQ Zipline.
Raider Nation on Location (RNOL), an innovative campaign that brings the Raiders face-to-face with the Raider Nation and beyond, will set up near Harley Davidson. At RNOL, fans can enter a raffle to win signed memorabilia, play games to win free Raiders gear, and try on authentic football gear to “Dress Like a Pro.” In addition, a Raider Image pop-up location will be open at Linc Promenade, where fans can purchase officially licensed Raiders merchandise.
As an added touch, the High Roller will celebrate the Raiders with a Silver and Black light show, while The LINQ Hoverboard Girls and The LINQ Drumline will dress in Raiders gear during the Raiders Watch Party, which airs in prime-time as the second game of the Monday Night Football regular season-opening doubleheader.
